Past Research in the DSG


The original DSG work focused on the V distributed system, which was developed in the 1981 to 1988 time frame (see CACM, March 1988 for an overview article). That work led to network protocol design including IP multicast ( RFC 1112), VMTP ( RFC 1045), Sirpent (SIGCOMM'89), and network interfacing VMP NAB (SIGCOMM'88).

The work on V also led to computer architecture work on multiprocessor memory systems that are well-structured for operating systems. This work include the VMP (ISCA'86 and 88) and more recently the ParaDiGM multiprocessor (IEEE Computer Feb.'91 - also available on gregorio.Stanford.EDU).
